Tuesday's Doings

Yesterday(Tuesday) dawned nice & sunny, if a little cold, which was fortunate as Vision Patchwork Club was hosting this years Queensland Quilters picnic. I was lucky the venue was across the road from my daughters school as it meant i could arrive bright & early to peruse the quilts Vision quilters had on display & the vendors stall without the crowds. It sure did get crowded later on as several bus loads of quilters from across Brisbane came to join in the picnic.

Of course i came home with lots of goodies after enjoying the day with several friends. 1st stop was Cath's stall. I needed a ruler holder with a few more slots & Cath had one on her stall also with drawers. Now i can store my cutters out of the way
Adorned with such cute little raggies. I also bought a few fat 1/4's,
some cottage garden threads,

 some ric rac & nail file,
just love the red & purple together. Cath gave me one of the patterns in the photo below & i couldn't go past buying the other, :)
I love the cute rabbits.
Judy also had a stall & i found some lovely brown spot fabric & a red there.
Gail's stall was next where i bought more Civil War fabrics,

this cute little hammer,
Why a hammer you ask? Because it does this:

opens out to a range of screwdrivers. :) I'd been trying so hard not to buy this pattern & i blame Joy for me buying it. :)
Gorgeous "It Takes Two" pattern by Sue Daley. Comes with all the templates to hand piece it. At the stall next to Cath's i found this lovely red fabric,
looks pink but it's a lovely red with black lace look all over it. The church where the picnic was held also has a garden club & they had a stall there. I spotted this plant,
I love elephant ear plants. The ladies of Vision Patchwork club had donated goodies for lucky door prizes & i happened to win one. :)
 A very hand bag to hold all my goodies. Inside of bag

The postie came just after i got home & in the mail was Vicki's gorgeous new Christmas pattern
I had a lovely day out yesterday.

Happy Stitching,
